CTC Meets JAI - An Easter Egg Throne Box

Hi there and welcome to addINKtive designs

JAI 255 and CTC 23

I was inspired to play along with the latest challenge at Just Add Ink to Just Add Eggs or Ovals because I was planning to make an Easter Egg Throne Box today and as you can see, that contains both an oval and an egg.  Bonus! 

When I was trying to decide on the embellishments etc., I opted to use a combination of SALE-A-BRATION and Occasions stamps and accessories, to fit in with the challenge at CASE-ing the Catty and join in on my 'off' week.  Double bonus!!

SAB Goodies:  In Colour Accessory Pack (Thick Baker's Twine and Small Designer Buttons), Stamp Set - Lotus Blossom
Occasions Catalogue Items:  Stamp Sets - Painted Petals and Butterfly Basics, Sahara Sand Lace Trim, Ornate Tag Topper Punch

I made about 20 of these boxes last year for the staff at work and I think my 2015 Easter Egg Throne Box would be perfect for my mum this time around.

Here's a link to the tutorial if you would like to make one for yourself -

Thanks for stopping by,

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
